Sussex Preview

After losing the first three games of the season against Lancashire, Hampshire, and Gloucestershire, Sussex finally managed to register a victory against Worcestershire. Currently, with just 1 win in the league stage, they are at 8th Place in the points table with 4 points in which their 2 games went resultless. While playing against Lancashire in the first game of the season, although they managed to score 270 runs on the board in which Travis Head scored 56 runs from 60 balls and Oliver Carter scored 55 runs from 58 balls, their bowlers failed to restrict that total to lose the first game of the season.  In the next match against Hampshire, bowlers failed to restrict opponents to a lower total and had conceded 328 runs.

Despite Travis Head’s 52 runs from 48 balls in the middle order, no other batsmen tried to put pressure on opponents and they lost that match as well. They finally managed to win their first game of the season against Worcestershire. James Coles and Archie Lenham, both bowled superb spells to take 3 wickets each and they restricted opponents to just 233 runs. Ali Orr scored a brilliant hundred (108 runs from 133 balls) while chasing the target. Although the team has good depth in the batting department, only Ali Orr and Travis Head have shown their skills with the bat. They need to be more focused against Middlesex in this upcoming match to win their second game of the season at Hove on the 12th of August.

Top players for Sussex: Travis Head, Ali Orr, Archie Lenham, Will Beer.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Ali Orr, Ben Brown, Tom Haines(c), Travis Head, Oliver Carter(wk), James Coles, Danial Ibrahim, Will Beer, Joseph Sarro, Henry Crocombe, Archie Lenham.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex are also struggling to find their regular form this season and managed to win just two games so far in this league stage. With 5 points from 6 matches including 2 wins and 3 defeats, they are just above Sussex at 7th place in the points table of the 2nd group. Middlesex have managed to beat Lancashire and Worcestershire so far this season. While playing against Essex in their first match of the season, their batting unit failed to put a score on the board and got bowled out on just 212 runs. Essex chased that target to win games by 9 wickets. Again while chasing the target of 289 runs in the next match against Durham, only Peter Handscomb (75 runs from 71 balls) and Robbie White ( 55 runs from 71 balls ), tried to move close to Durham’s target. 

With the help of Stephen Eskinazi’s brilliant 130 runs 101 balls, Middlesex managed to put 302 runs on the board while playing against Worcestershire.  James Harris and Thilan Walallawita both took 2 wickets each to help their team to register the first victory of the season. Again with the help of Ethan Bamber’s 3 wickets for 49 runs, they managed to restrict Lancashire to just 251 runs while defending 258 runs. The team’s bowlers performed well this season while defending low totals but the team’s batting remains the concern for them this season. They will now try to execute their plans well while batting in the middle order against Sussex in this upcoming match at Hove.

Key players for Middlesex: Stephen Eskinazi, Robbie White, Peter Handscomb, Ethan Bamber.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Eskinazi, Varun Chopra, Peter Handscomb(c), Robbie White(wk), Max Holden, Martin Andersson, James Harris, Joshua De Caires, Thilan Walallawita, Ethan Bamber, Toby Greatwood.

Venue Details

The County Ground in Hove will host this match. This ground is considered a home ground of the Sussex side and has conducted many domestic games. This stadium can accommodate a total of 4,000 people.

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has offered an advantage to bowlers in few previous domestic matches. The team who has opted to bowl first here has delivered better than the batting team. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first and chase.

By looking at the current form of the players this season, we can say that Middlesex have a strong squad in terms of bowling. On the other hand, Sussex’s bowlers have conceded more runs in the death overs and remained expensive in this season. Middlesex will try to put early pressure on Sussex’s bowling unit to clinch 2 points in this upcoming game at Hove.
 

We predict that Middlesex will defeat Sussex.
